Gaming Art Spotlight: Nintendo Mother’s Day Cards
Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re on a budget or just love doing things with your hands, homemade gifts are the way to go.
I decided to do a mini series of 3 Nintendo-themed Mother’s Day cards. I’m a big fan of the number 3. It’s not too much, it’s not too little.
The hardest part was trying to figure out what characters I wanted to draw. I played around with a couple of Link concepts, but they seemed more like Valentine’s Day cards (yikes!). I narrowed it down to Maria and Giygas from the first Mother game, Kirby, and Yoshi.
I worked on a few concept sketches, trying to figure out the composition and layout. Sticking to a simple design, I grabbed my tools and went to work!
Add a few more personal touches, like iridescent gold paint for your mom’s golden heart and a slightly crooked handwritten message, and it’s ready to be sent with love.
